Netflix greenlit a second season of The Witcher just weeks before the first season’s release, demonstrating its faith in the series. The foresight of NBCUniversal paid off: The show came in second place on the list of the most-watched series in 2019.
FAN OF FANTASY spoke with Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia) about what drew him to the role. “I’m an avid fan of the genre. My father read the book to be the first time I learned to read. That’s about all that distinguishes it from your average fantasy.
This, according to what I’ve heard, is the Polish way of doing things. As a result, there is a strong Polish influence. The music has an intriguing harder edge.
Because The Witcher is set in such a dark world, it’s impossible to predict what will happen, as it is with Game of Thrones. But enough with the past! What does the future hold for Geralt of Rivia?
About The Witcher Season 2 Release
I assure you that it is good news for everyone. The filming is now complete. In a behind-the-scenes video, Cavill and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich teased what’s to come. “Surely, none of us have ever witnessed a television season like this before! Since we last left them at the Battle of Sodden Hill, Yennefer, Jaskier, Ciri, and all of your favorite characters have been busy. We’re excited to show you what they’ve been up to!”
Netflix has announced that The Witcher, You, and Cobra Kai will be released in the fourth quarter of this year, in addition to The Witcher. Many of the projects we had hoped to release sooner were pushed back due to post-production and Covid delays.
The Witcher Season 2 Cast?
Hissrich confirmed to Deadline that Cavill and his co-stars Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) and Freya Allan (Ciri) will return for season two, as previously reported.
Joey Batey plays Jaskier, Myanna Buring plays Tissaia, Lars Mikkelson plays Stregobor, Tom Canton plays Filavandrel, Theresa Wilson Read plays Sabrina, Jeremy Crawford plays Yarpen Zigrin, and Royce Young plays Istredd).
She’ll be back soon with more for you. Ringilla is one of the characters Hissrich wants to learn more about, she says (via Vulture). “We’re looking into how she ended up at Nilfgaard, who she is as a person, and how she and Yennefer ended up on such opposing paths. As a result of this promotion, she now has a lot more responsibility on her shoulders.”
